Need some ancient advice to discern the good from wicked in your life?
I read a blog post titled: …the simple… and the wise… have seen them… which contained a W. B. Yates saying. It brought to mind a king Solomon proverb advice for all us Kings and Queens to emulate taps we journey in life.
A wise king scatters the wicked like wheat, then runs his threshing wheel over them. (Proverb 20:26)
Excerpt – Gils Bible Commentary
A wise king scattered the wicked, or “fans them away” (i); separates them from his good counsellors,
and bringeth the wheel over them; alluding to the custom of the eastern nations turning a cart wheel over the grain in threshing it out
What’s My Point?
If we read both sayings of both writers, it is basically the same advice.
My point wise advice is timeless.
In My Opinion
I recommend we read the Yates saying in the Source Links and discern if the same wisdom advice is needed in our own times and life.
Wise or foolish advice?
